It has been confirmed by the UK Ministry of Defense that young Prince Harry has been seeing combat on the front lines of Afghanistan alongside other British troops. According to the Prince, “As far as I’m concerned I’m out here as a normal JTAC on the ground and not as Prince Harry.” For two months, Harry had been in battle without media coverage after an agreement to keep the information mum had been made between British and international media due to security issues over the prince’s safety.
However, it looks like a U.S. web site (not us) was the first to break the story and now I don’t know if that means that he’ll have to leave or what, but in any case, go Harry!
More photos of Prince Harry in Afghanistan are after the jump.
